Re: Langford needs to consider consolidating garbage pickup (Letters, Sept. 23)
We also live in the Happy Valley area of Langford. Once every five or six weeks we take one bag of garbage into Alpine. If you purchase a card for 10 bags you get the 11th bag free. This gives us almost one year of garbage disposal for $40.00.
There is no way to have weekly pick-up for anywhere near this. We don’t make a special trip to Alpine, it’s done on a day that we have other errands to do, so it’s not an inconvenience.
We also compost, so no kitchen waste pick-up is needed.
